Keyboard Shortcuts

A few days ago in a class I was surprised to have a teacher point out to me that I use "too many shortcuts". I wasn't sure how to take that at first and I asked her to elaborate. Her point was that I use alot of keyboard shortcuts that sometimes leaves the user in question as to what exactly I did to "make something happen".  I take for granted sometimes that I do that and please do point that out to me if you ever are in class with me and I assume too much! I thought you may enjoy a few keyboard shortcuts so I have pasted a list below that I found on the Microsoft website. Most of these are for WORD, but most work in all Microsoft Applications. ENJOY and Keep me on my toes!
